Theme Parks in video games

Saturday, June 28, 2003 7:02 PM
While playing the game Wakeboarding Unleshed for PS2, i beat it and got to the last level and the last level is a theme park with 2 rollercoasters. I put the cheats in and road both rollercoasters cause i had all ballence (i grinded). A frisbee and waveswinger also appear in the level. It seemed to be a six flags park cause it had the tank for a whale show or something to that nature.

Um just out of curiosity, but how do you grind on a wakeboard? ;) Back to the topic at hand, maybe the amusement park was "made-up" just for the game?

The game with the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Big Dipper is California Speed.

Cal Speed is a funny game! in the Santa Cruz level the giant dipper is three tracks next to each other and the boardwalk pathway leads right onto the coaster! very unrealistic (well, its an n64 game!)

The original, arcade version of California Speed is much better, I remember being able to hit the people on the side of the road.

Yes, hitting people is definately a plus... I also remember playing a racing game in which you rode on a roller coaster. Ape Escape for Playstation also has a fun little level where you ride a roller coaster too. Not that I play it or anything... ;)

Tony Hawk 4 also has a carnival level. You can grind a coaster and a darkride.

And most good racegames featuring the Suzuka circuit should have a yellow spaghetti bowl and a red SLC in the background...Mad Cobra and Black-Out at Suzuka Circuitland.

Also Gran Turismo 3 has a Japanese streetcircuit where you can see a coaster and a huge giant wheel in the distance.

Mat Hoffman 2 has a Las Vegas level with a coaster running through the middle. One of the objectives is to grind the coaster.

One of the Daytona racing games has a track that runs through a theme park. You go directly under a swinging pirate ship, and a coaster with vertical drops crosses your path several times.

One of the tracks on the old Pole Position II had what looked like a Schwartzkopf shuttle in the background.

Pole Position was Atari, I'm pretty sure. I bet there was at least one of those shuttles in Japan back in 1983 or whenever that game was made.

In F12001 for X-Box on the Japan track you can see a few coasters and rides.

Jet Grind Radio (or whatever it is called for X-Box -- Jet Grind Future I believe) has a level where you grind an inverted coaster.

Right...Atari. I must have confused it with a different racing game.

Pole Position (c) 09/1982 Namco.

- TRIVIA:

Also licensed to Atari for US manufacture and distribution (11/1982).
Approximately 20, 400 units were produced by Atari (~17, 250 Upright and ~3, 150 Cocktail).

A bootleg of this game is known as "Top Racer".

Pole Position started the trend for foto-realistic graphics in video games. In addition to great graphics, it had great game play and it was a huge success, dominated game charts for almost about 2 years. Modern driving games are still more or less based on Pole Position, only graphics have improved.

A little old, well, really old, but the original Sim City had an amusement park that you could put in. Your other option was a casino.
